A man has been sentenced to 15 years imprisonment for planning a terror attack using a remote-controlled car filled with explosives in the UK.
Farhad Salah’s plot was foiled in the early stages when counter-terrorism police raided his home in Sheffield, northern England.
The 24-year-old, a supporter of ISIS, was found with extremist material including films of murder and torture.
After a six-week trial at Sheffield crown court, a jury found him guilty of preparing acts of terrorism.
Salah, who is originally from Iraq, had hoped to harm others without harming himself, the court heard during the trial.
A second man, chip shop owner Andy Star, 32, of Chesterfield, was also arrested but the jury failed to reach a verdict in his case.
